National Book Award Longlist Winner of the Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction Winner of the Foreword INDIE Editor's Choice Prize for Nonfiction "Rebecca Solnit is essential feminist reading." --The New Republic "Solnit's exquisite essays move between the political and the personal, the intellectual and the earthy." --Elle Rebecca Solnit is the author of more than twenty books, including the international bestsellerMen Explain Things to Me. Called "the voice of the resistance" by theNew York Times, she has emerged as an essential guide to our times, through her incisive commentary on feminism, violence, ecology, hope, and everything in between. In this powerful and wide-ranging collection, Solnit turns her attention to battles over meaning, place, language, and belonging at the heart of the defining crises of our time. She explores the way emotions shape political life, electoral politics, police shootings and gentrification, the life of an extraordinary man on death row, the pipeline protest at Standing Rock, and the existential threat posed by climate change. The work of changing the world sometimes requires changing the story, the names, and inventing or popularizing new names and terms and phrases. Calling things by their true names can also cut through the lies that excuse, disguise, avoid, or encourage inaction, indifference, obliviousness in the face of injustice and violence.… (meer)

Ms Solnit is brilliant, as always, but she isn't always edited well by her publisher who, in her 4th essay collection for Hey Day books has once again, put her work in kind of a jumbled nonsense of a pile. If you can stand that these essays seem thrown about like yesterday's laundry, you'll be fine. On their own, they are magical, particularly "Preaching to the Choir" ( )

I've read a lot of Solnit's work, and I particularly like the essays in this collection. ( )

I always love [[Rebecca Solnit]]'s essays, and this collection was particularly good. The uniting focus is that words and labels matter and that small actions can add up to big change. Though times are dark, this collection is surprisingly hopeful. The essays sparked my anger but also made me proud of the way many in our country are standing up and making their dissatisfaction public.

I bought a bunch of Solnit's collected essays and I think I'll pick up another right away. Solnit's writing is always points out the uncomfortable and always challenges me to reassess my biases. Plus her skill in the use of the English language is remarkable. ( )

The book was published in 2018, so the information is a little dated but reflects back on political events and how they have affected the community involved. The events covered include shootings of minorities, the Dakota Pipeline and its impact on the indigenous people, and Hillary Clinton's run for president. I admire the writer's ability to weave all these events together and come up with a lucid conclusion. We need to stand up as women for ourselves and any oppressed people. ( )

Me loving Rebecca Solnit's essay collections is nothing new - but it's been so long since I read one that I was honestly surprised by just how much these pieces struck a chord with me.

This is at once a frustrating read because Solnit bluntly draws attention to a range of injustices, but it's also uplifting and motivating to keep fighting the good fight. I like how this essay collection covered a whole range of topics (whereas the two I read previously focused predominantly on feminism) and drew the connections between a wide variety of issues - from racism and sexism to homelessness, climate change, and the prison system.

I just want to quote all of "Ideology of Isolation", "Hope in Grief", and "In Praise of Indirect Consequences". ( )

One of the folktale archetypes, according to the Aarne-Thompson classification of these stories, tells of how "a mysterious or threatening helper is defeated when the hero or heroine discovers his name." -Forward
